I'm SO there - hopefully it won't be pouring rain! Hope to see you there, too! I believe impeachment is one of the most critical components of the Constitution, meant to steer us clear of self-serving despots who think they are above the law and who are doing the opposite of serving the people. It's not partisan, or frivolous and it's not too late to protect our democracy, our safety and future generations!
Rant over, thanks. Peace.

IMPEACHMENT FLASHMOB (1,200 people plus helicopter)
Sat, Jan 6, Ocean Beach, San Francisco, 10:30 a.m.

On Saturday, January 6, 2007 (just two days after the new US Congress convenes), 1,200 people will gather for a (Park Service-permitted) impeachment event in Nancy Pelosi’s back yard -- on Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

Early that morning, in 100-foot letters stretching 450 feet across the sand, volunteers from the Beach Impeach Project will outline the message:
I M P E A C H !
At 10:30 a.m., the 1,200 attendees will arrive and lay their bodies down inside the message’s lettering. At 11 o’clock a helicopter will arrive overhead and photographers will record the 1,200 bodies in the sand -- “IMPEACH!” -- with the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

News editors will have compelling photos for the next morning’s Sunday papers; the nation and world will have convincing evidence of how badly the American people (even Ms. Pelosi’s own constituency) want their leaders held accountable for the Iraq disaster; and the impeachment movement will have powerful visuals to go with the words and chatter swirling in the air for months and months now.

To participate, please take 60 seconds to register yourself and your friends. If 1,200 people register in advance, this will be not just a frolic at the beach, but a NEWS story (the media are already interested). Also, I can communicate via just one email with all who are registered, instead of 1,200 emails.

Please take 60 seconds to register:
-- go to http://www.volunteerforchange.org
-- hit "View the event calendar"
-- go down to "Saturday 1/6/07 -- Beach Impeach Project" (we're that day's only event)
-- follow the signup directions (takes about 60 seconds)
